122514 pathetic rebellion


the only thing that matters
the earth beneath our feet
the entire planet
its life support systems
and everything in between.

we have the capacity through
evolution or creation
to participate in and protect
the evolution of creation
or to erase and eliminate
ourselves from the equation completely
through capricious stupidity
the magnitude of which
no other species has ever expressed.

We decide our destiny.
Without earth, we die.
Better to disappear
at the behest of a far greater power
than fade away from the incompetent
hands of abuse and neglect:
familiar, self-inflicted, suicidal
the same way every cancer commits
pathetic rebellion, pointless.
The Earth, unflinching, abides.
